Nearly every slnte nud territory
within the United states lm an
nrbor day, which h set apart for
the planting of trees. In ninny
states and cities the school children
take the lead in this commendable
work of beautifying a town or ham
let. The observance of the day al
so teaches the crowing youth
familiarity with trees It inspires
in the child a love ol nature and
fosters an interest in the preserva
tion of forests.
Kvery street and highway in and
about Hilo should be lined with
beautiful green trees and our embryo
parks should be made to blossom
and thrive with .tropical flowers.
Cities like Washington, Cleve
land, Detroit and New England
centers find street adornment one
of the hcautifjing features of their
municipalities. If the government
will not undertake the planting of
trees along street curbs, residents
may be prevailed upon to plant a
selected class of shade trees along
their sidewalk lines at irregular in
tervals. Such trees may be ob
tained from the government nursery
in Honolulu free of cost and with
little expense the present nakedness
of our thoroughfares could be trans
formed into beautiful shaded
There is an opportunity for the
organization of an Arbor Day
Society or Improvement Club, hav
ing in view the objects outlined
above. Hilo should not be slow in
looking after these matters of tree
planting while it may be done
economically and well.
WHY THE KICKER KICKS.
Why the Kicker continues to
kick about an established institu
tion like the Wireless Telegraph is
more than the average human mind
can fathom, except it be a chronic
desire to be "agin" something.
The man who believes thoroughly
in his town, its people, its business
men and institutions is the citizen
who is of the most value to the
community. He who is an enthu
siastic advocate of all things that
pertain to the welfare of the locality
in which he lives, is the man de
serving of attention when he has
anything to say. Hut a man that
continually decries business enter
prises against which he has a
grievance when public opinion is
otherwise is not entitled to any
serious consideration. Since the
improvement in the wireless service,
there has been no cause for com
plaint, and unless there be other
reasons between the parties them
selves, the public can only judge
the value of the wireless system of
telegraphy by the promptness and
reliability of its service.
THE KICKERS BUSY.
It is true that in the inception of
wireless service, there were plenty
of hitchs and . delays, which was
only natural in the establishment
of a new and not well understood
service. Hut thanks to the in-
dominable energy and skill of Mr.
l'red Cross, aid,ed by the presistent
efforts of the other backers of the
enterprise, the wireless system has
been working lor months past with
out a flaw. " True there was a de
lay on the day after election, but
that was caused by a tangling of
land wires between Honolulu and
Harber's Point. The wireless ser
vkv is all right, and the prc-s
above all others should stop all un
calle.l for kicking. Maui News.

The forty-fifth meeting of the Hilo
Teachers' Unlan was held in the Union
School on Friday, Dec. 2. There was nil
attendance of fifty-six most of whom
were teachers. '
The opening exercises conidslcd of
prayer hv Capt. McLeod, ami two chor
imch by MUs Severance's pupils.
The roll call was answered by giving
the derivation of Kngllsh woid. The
minutes of the previous meeting were
read and nmiroved. The secretary read
a letter from Milton Bradley Co. in
answer lo the Union's letter of thanks
for their display at the October meeting.
Miss Veuabtc hud a class III language.
After a review of the mouths and holi
days Miss Veil Able gave a word picture
of Christmas among the poor children of
a large city. A picture was referred to
and studied. Sentences were developed
and written on the black board. These
were then read and written by the class
In addition to the teaching of language
the lesson had for its object the cultiva
tion of the benevolent faculties.
tiapt. McLeod followed with a lecture
on The Human Face and How to Read
it. After a brief review of the mc.iuing
of phrenology the lecturer showed the
importance of the study. It is our great
est means of acquiring self-knowledge. It
teaches the sick how to become well
without medicine, and the strong to re
main so. It is of incalculable value espe
cially to the teacher who desires to bring
out the best in the child and to suppress
the evil'tendencies. The entire body, as
well as each part, is an index to the
character within. The hand or the foot
or even a pair of worn shoes may be read
like on open hook of the person's char
acter by the skilful phrenologist. The
particular subject was discussed by tak
ing in order the neck, chin, lips and
mouth, nose, check, eareye and brow
and giving the different types with the
character Indicated by each. Hut the en
tire make-up must be studied said the
speaker'as oftcu a weakness in one part
is counterbalanced by a strong point else
where. Young people contemplating
marriage were given somc sage advice
regarding suitable partners to choose.
The bust of Cujsar is agreed upon hv all
as most nearly representing the perfectly
balanced man. The meeting expressed
appreciation of the lecture.
After recess the Misses Hill sang n
duet, "Wandering Wavelets," accom
panied by Mrs. Tracy.
Mr. C. W. Italdwiu, in his lecture on
Current Events in the School Room,
urgtd upon the teachers the necessity of
giving the children an intelligent idea of
the events of the world. He brought the
matter home to every teacher by asking,
"Could I talk to your pupils about the
war or the St. Louis Exposition and
secure their interest?" If not, then the
subject had not been properly presented
by the teacher. Geography teaching at
present should centre in Asia and the
scene of the war. The principles for
which each uatiou is contending should
be understood. Air. Baldwin guve a
summarized account of his trip last sum
mer across the continent via St. Louis to
Washington and back by the Cauudiau
route repeating the question, "Could I
secure interest fiom your pupils if I
should tell them about the cnormousness
of the Exposition or about the attractions
of Washington City?"
School Hygiene was on the program
for treatment by Mrs. Hitchcock but 011
account of illness it was impossible to
prepare for It.
The last item was "The Development
of the English Language" by Mr. Mc
Cluskey. . The history of the people
accounts for their language and vice
versa. English was originally a pure
tongue but now it contains elements from
almost every language. Specimens of
these were given.
Mrs. A. G. Curtis was called upon to
read an extract from Tennyson's "Dora"
to illustrate the poet's use of the purely
English element which is more suited to
poetry because of its defiuitencss, forje
The next meeting will be held on
March 3, with Mr. Neff, MissM. L. Dcyo
and Mrs. Wakefield ns program committee.
